I’m really enjoying Leicester and the way they play. I really hope they can stave off the inevitable vultures in January, at least until the summer. Vardy seems tailor made for a Mourinho side though. I imagine for someone like him, at his age, and where he has been the chance of £100k+ p/w and a shot at CL football will be very hard to turn down - I’d struggle to blame him for that too.
That said, their squad isn’t the deepest. Injuries will hit, and there will be a dip. I hope they can sustain it, I’d love for a club like them to put it up the big boys a bit. Fully supporting them the rest of the season.
Personally think it is City’s to lose. Just can’t see anyone else nicking it off them.
Annoyingly, I think Spurs are a really good side. Not a huge fan of how he handled his move, but MP is a good manager, we saw that here and he is starting to get that into place at Spurs. £5m for Alli looks an effing steal, Toby and Vertonghen look as solid a pairing as anyone in the league and Lloris is quality. Really think that 4th spot is theirs to lose.
For the drop, mostly agree with above. Might depend on who Swansea get in, and how that goes. But think Sunderland will probably bore their way to survival. Watford look solid, Quique Flores is a good manager, would be very surprised if they go down. For me that only really leaves Norwich, Bournemouth, Newcastle & Villa.
B’mouth have been so unlucky with injuries. Think they are doomed.
Villa just don’t look to have much, even that point against us felt a bit smash and grab.
Can’t pick between Norwich & Newcastle.
